Romelu Lukaku has delayed any talk about his future until after the World Cup.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Everton, scoring 16 goals in 33 appearances, and is now preparing for the World Cup with Belgium.

The Toffees are reportedly keen to take him back to Goodison Park next season, but he could return to parent club Chelsea.

Tottenham have also expressed an interest in Lukaku, but the towering striker insists he’s only thinking about the World Cup for now.

“I’ve not thought about my future club for next season,” he told RTBF.

“For me the most important thing is the World Cup.

“I am 100 per cent focused on it – after that, the rest will follow.”
